      I use it all the time

      Fantastic on emotional vocal ballads, the low cut option is great - only reverberating the frequencies you want. I use this in almost every session!

      Easy To Use, Great Sound!

      Let me preface this by saying I'm a songwriter that needs to create reasonable work tapes for my publisher to review prior to an official demo recording. I am not an engineer and prefer easy to use plugins with great presets to get the sound I need. i.e. live recording either guitar or keyboard with vocals, presets to get the sound I'm after without too much tweaking, then a quick master with BX Masterdesk Classic. I do own quite a few UA plugins but only write a glowing review about a few of them...this is one...

      This is my go to reverb...so simple to dial in the sound I'm looking for! Perfect for my needs!

      pure, easy, nice

      Vocals and strings.
      And much more.
      Seriously, this reverb is awesome, and wherever you mix it, it sounds everywhere.

      better than a crusty SPX-90 plate.

      some people would probably want to hang me for saying that, but i had a rack mount SPX-90, and i seriously do not remember the plates sounding as good as this unit..
      maybe it was the noise...i had a buzz in my old SPX that was just loud enough to drive me nuts...this, of course, is dead quiet; except for the lush plate verb sound it dishes out so well....totally excellent.

      Basically since the first time I tried the demo of this reverb I fell in love completely. She definitely became my partner when it came to mixing and recording vocals. Pure Plate makes you feel in a deep space perfect for singing or playing any instrument. I use it on vocals mainly but also on drums, guitars, whatever ... Pure Plate is an expensive sounding reverb at a friendly price.

      Easy and simple to set up, just the perfect go to plate, and also gentle on DSP usage

      By far the best in its simplicity!

      Absolutely must have! Loved it’s incarnation inside the Ox Box and having the ability to use it in LOGIC makes my reverb itches complete forever. Pure 70s, lush, rich and expensive!

      Great plate!

      Simple to use and sounds great. A little heavy on DSP compared to other (native) plates.
